6:04 am
to quality across some of the markets this morning. oil south 44.39. the fix 3140, giving you every indication of the tension -- the vix 31.40, giving you every indication of the tension. sometimes and make charts and i do not know what i am going to see. in 1998 it was more elevated than now, but not as much as i expected. there is 1997, 1998. brendan: the vix is measuring something different in every decade. when you run it back this far the complacency. right there. nothing wrong, we're fine, we have it all figured out. while, we have not paid attention to that. tom: this is the 47 days i felt
6:05 am
i could retire at some point. brendan: when the vix goes low you should be concerned. that is what i take away from this chart. tom: volatility continues. most focus well on stocks but there is great correlation with emerging markets struggling. we see that this morning. the chinese yuan appreciates while brazil and australia seen new currency weakness. jon ferro is in london. we have asked kate moore to attend. she is a strategist. also again, our senior vice president of cell in -- of cell in may and go away mike regan. there is the linkage between australia and china within this market turmoil. jon: it really does tom. there was a politician bragging about how the economy was with
6:06 am
the western financial crisis. they are feeling the pain now. a slowdown in china, their biggest export destination. there is a job in the aussie dollar, south of $.70, a 2009 low, with potentially more pain to come for aussie currency. brendan: jon why did you move to brazil when you had the chance? jon: let's not have that debate. brendan: we are close to 3.07 on the yuan. jon: for brazil, there was a big credit boom over there for the last five or 10 years as well. the slowdown there is not a shock. it has been developing for the last several years. we have to get used to this. tom: quickly, what do you learn
6:07 am
in the european stock market this morning as we look for the dow to open? jon: keep it short. stabilization. tom: i like that. jon ferro, thank you so much. he is into this new one-word response to my question. i hate the guy. michael regan is joining us, and kate moore from j.p. morgan private bank. mike: i would like to bring it back to the vxix. the volatility is becoming its own catalyst now. a lot of the focus is coming to these risk parity strategies, in an attempt to outfox your traditional 60-40 pension style investment, they create an ideal portfolio to reduce the sharpe ratio, and then they lever up on futures in stocks. tom: this gets to the heart of
6:08 am
the matter. is the roulette wheel of the end of august and early september -- is that -- are we beholden to the hedge funds? are they the ones driving the cart? michael: not just hedge funds. tom: the market pros. michael: it is not identical strategies, but they are similar enough that it appears like a crowded trade -- with the volatility as low as it is people got complacent, and now volatility has whipped up, and they are pulling back the leverage to less volatile portfolios. that might be a temporary phenomenon. the question is, obviously the economic data globally is weakening as well, so it is unclear how much of the selling is because of this phenomenon. brendan: let's look at u.s. equities. is there any shelter in this rain? michael: it is a buy, the whole
6:09 am
market, and there is sort of this tension between the fundamentalists who think it has gone too far and the volatility that is still shaking out. tom: kate moore is with us as well, from jpmorgan. i want to bring up a quote from her. she was in central park under an oaks tree it was gorgeous, end of summer as her blackberry was burning up from jpmorgan. tom: why is this selloff, this volatility, different than what we see in 1998? kate: we were lulled into this sense of low volatility complacency for the last couple of years the rate although lots
6:10 am
of us have participated in the markets for years, this is a little bit spooky. we need to see volatility rise a little bit. we need to see greater dispersion in the market. when it happened, everyone backed off at the same time. i am no expert on trading strategies, but everything i am hearing is that most of this is systematically driven. most of the institutional investors are really looking to buy and pick up high-quality stocks during the selloff. tom: one of the great observations when christer kronos -- when chris verrone us -- it is not a crystal ball of what is to come. brendan: we keep looking at the vix. i wish i had a nickel for every time i heard the word volatility in the last month. what is volatility for, kate? kate: volatility at think is eu euphemism for selloff right now. we have not seen the market drawdown in a meaningful way, and this is why we equate
6:11 am
volatility with the selloff that is more traditional in size and scope and nature. i would suggest there are different volatility measures across asset classes that people need to pay attention to. volatility has not spiked as much as the equity volatility. vonnie: what will the catalyst be for the market pick up again? kate: we need to get through this fed meeting. good, solid economic data has not led to people feeling more comfortable about investing over the balance of this year. we need to clear signal from the fed meeting that they are ready to move forward and that they view the economy is being on solid ground. tom: kate moore, and we have a killer chart to use later in the hour on this great bull market. michael regan, thank you so much again this morning. coming up, oil moving as well. funny mentioned it, dachshund

barclays covers their successful, weaker australian dollar trade. michelle putting up a message -- barclays covers weaker australian trade. we have seen some of those emerging markets weaker this morning. there is a great correlation of emerging markets. it is weaker and weaker at 3.70 and we begin our coverage with jon ferro in london. michael regan to give us perspective on wall street. ralph of ever core. you see this cover a successful trade and he emphasizes that there is more to go. what are these markets linked to? tom: --
7:05 am
jon: that is the easy way out. brazil has the messick issues and you could talk about malaysia. the broad headline is china. it is the commodities headline. it's a 22% depreciation in the aussie dollar and two years. stock jen says potentially even more pain to come. brendan: about 60 different stories you could choose from, which is journeying across the u.s. cross rate? tom: that will be the story in the months and the years to come. it will be the basics. what happens with the euro and the ecb? long janet yellen and short mario draghi? tom: we will keep it this morning.
7:06 am
jon ferro, through the day watching the equity markets. we have been doing this hourly with michael regan of bloomberg news. what was different yesterday. >> you cannot count on this v-shaped recovery we have had in the bull market. this is the most anomalous dip we have seen since 2011. the question to me is -- is that low we set going to hold? we are about 400 dow points above it now. the drop we saw last week -- if you look at the channel at the chart has been in, we really pierced below the bottom of the channel sharply. not just because of the drop last week but the flattening out of the market.
7:07 am
it's a great cliche. i didn't mean to rhyme those. tom: he is talented. brendan: come what may. [laughter] when you look at futures looking at microsoft, apple and bank of america performing the best now. >> people are a little bit confident in the market today but this is not a real robust rally in futures. it doesn't appear to be a v-shaped recovery. it would not surprise me if we make another test at those lows. tom: thank you, so much. with us to provide perspective on wall street. ralph flaustein. not only the founder of lack rock but someone who has minted a new form of calculus.
7:08 am
alden is in therapy over the red sox. >> i am in therapy over the phillies. tom: ralph you have great perspective on who is playing in the market. is this those evil people or those trade constructors causing this or is there a better explanation? >> i think that they may from time to time accelerate the direction the market is moving and reinforced that this is not about black boxes or daytraders. this is about -- number one there is a global growth concern scare which is raising the question about real stock
7:09 am
multiples and whether earnings going forward will be higher than they have been historically and a really important thing which is the more important impact is a questioning of the government and the policymakers's ability to manage the economy. i liken it to -- when we had the debt ceiling extension crisis, and the default on the debt -- our markets were very volatile and went down. it was not a fundamental problem, it was a crisis of confidence. tom: the distinction is that nobody goes on vacation. you have two bloomberg terminals at your summer place. i suggest the august idea is not there. everybody is playing 24/7. in my right? >> i think that is true of not
7:10 am
only markets but everything. there is no downtime anywhere. tom: time for a surveillance correction. good morning, mr. bloomberg. let's do a twitter question that we are asking. we will talk to brendan greeley about that particularly with brazil and the challenges there in the hour. ♪
7:11 am
7:12 am
tom: here is what you need to know. andrew cosgrove of bloomberg intelligence says forget about it. the opec speculation which led to a spring higher in oil prices is maybe not correct. 44.38 -- down 2%. two days in a row. brendan: moving that into credit yields to -- yields. it is performed better than any other sector this month. it's as energy cannot be alone
7:13 am
down there. walk me through this -- energy is a canary for the rest of the market. who will join whom and where? >> yes. [laughter] there will be some combination of both. basically, what these analysts argue is you cannot have this gap and one month. the worst monthly loss since the financial crisis of 2008 while bank bonds and technology bonds deliver positive returns. vonnie: isn't energy in its own sphere? >> is it. the junk-bond market at about 22% if you include metal, mining's and boils -- almost -- and boils -- oils.
7:14 am
what happens if prices continue to go lower and the default rates pickup? they will pull their money. brendan: sandra cosgrove told us to look at the rate count in the middle east but i pulled this chart yesterday -- if you look at that rig count it has reached kind of a bottom. does that mean the carnage in that debt is over or has just become? >> ubs analysts expect the higher-quality names to do better and recommend buying them. there are still a lot of questions about some of the other parts of the industry. there could be more weakness in the broader economy. vonnie: it reaches the bottom until it goes lower. brendan: always darkest before it goes pitch black. vonnie: lisa, thank you so much. we will tweak out your story.
7:15 am
-- tweet out your story. tom: let me get the twitter question of the day in. looking at a weaker brazilian real mexican peso near 17 and the australian dollar linked to china. week australian growth goes from zero to 0.7. that is a huge deal. equity futures up nine. ♪
7:16 am
7:17 am
7:18 am
tom: the 10 year yield, what is it doing? not very much. the story here is that yields have not moved all that much. let's get to our top headlines. vonnie: the manhunt in illinois is expanding for three suspects. they are searching a village north of chicago.
7:19 am
schools in fox lake are closed. the officer was fatally shot yesterday while chasing three men on foot. the fourth officer killed on duty within two weeks. netflix has another building block on its global strategy in place. it has already in the u.s. produced its own programming and purdue -- plans to do the same in japan. prosecutors are using a simple trick to hunt for cheaters on wall street. ctrl s. it helps them search for acronyms that may -- they use terms such as tof -- or talk off-line are being used for insider trades. i didn't know about that. so the investigators are control f-ing tol.
7:20 am
get it? anyway. higher capital requirements will lead to better returns. that is according to our guest. if washington succeeds in breaking up systemic institutions than shareholders when and everyone is happy. is that what you are saying? >> i am not saying this will definitely happen but the additional cushion of capital being required by these systemically important institutions places a heavy burden on them to generate enough of a return from their core businesses to basically produce an adequate return for shareholders. jpmorgan -- they have done a brilliant job. it is the best managed financial
7:21 am
institution in the united states. that is a very high hurdle to jump over to produce great returns. vonnie: can you see jpmorgan breaking up? >> clearly they do not want to do. but the hurdle put on by these capital requirements will require a couple things. it will require a really aggressive attention to expenses because it will cause a redrawing of the line between the return that shareholders get and employees get and it places a burden on them to have really well run effective and highly profitable businesses. if they can't do that the pressure will come not from regulators but from the market. brendan: it sounds almost like
7:22 am
dodd-frank achieves what it set out to. >> i believe we are at or very near a peak in regulation. i have been asked in the past will discontinue higher and higher? i don't believe that. i think we have more than enough at this point. vonnie: how have higher capital requirements benefited the likes of ever core? >> the most important thing for our growth is that we are on -- it's a very attractive place for the most talented people to work. that's it. higher capital requirements lower returns and lower pay. less freedom to serve clients. those are all things that are good for of a court but i am not an advocate of that.
7:23 am
tom: you picked up the number one market economist in the world. how did that happen? >> they had a company very similar to ours in a different business. a pure intellectual capital relationship business. tom: i want the dirt on this. >> it is a little bit like -- tom: you took him to a phillies-red sox game. [laughter] >> if i did that, it wouldn't happen. i think ever core is a very elite advisory banking business and isi had a very elite research program and there is actually an enormous amount of opportunity for those businesses together. brendan: alan greenspan said 20%
7:24 am
capital requirement forget the other regulations -- done to you -- done. did you spit out your coffee when you read that? >> think that is too high. but i agree with the thrust. if you have strong capital requirements and reasonably effective risk regulation everything else that the risk regulators to has little effect on systemic risk. brendan: if not 20% what is the ratio? 15%? >> i think it is lower than that. i would actually say that some of these extra layers of capital -- the world historically tells you that diversification is a good thing. with the regulators are saying is you are more diversified so you need more capital.

brendan: coming up next, john kerry is in philadelphia today talking about the iran nuclear deal. ♪

. tom: off the radar for americans and on the radar for europe. this is a major station within eastern europe. those are police officers on the steps keeping people from the middle east out.
7:29 am
so they cannot go to germany. the district -- distance from budapest to munich is somewhat the distance of new york city to cleveland. that is the distance that europe is transfixed by this morning between hungary and germany. vonnie: to celebrate its one or two victory, china is closing its stock exchange for the rest of the week. china's stocks saw wild trading today before closing slightly lower. they are down 40% from their peak in mid june. futures right now are pointing to a higher open for u.s. stocks. the dow lost 469 points. vladimir putin is joining those world war ii celebrations in china. while the occasion is the path

to victory. most of them never before shown in public. the network will choose the participants using only the most recent polling. that could help carly fiorina. the networks are struggling to deal with the field of 17 candidates. bloomberg news reports that the chinese mobile phone maker plans to roll out early next year. they were founded five years ago and is fourth worldwide in smartphone sales. breakfast time will soon be anytime at mcdonald's. on october 6 it will start offering mcmuffin's all day long. the company says they are responding to years of public demand.
7:31 am
mcdonald's got over 120,000 twitter requests last year for all day breakfast. tom: will this cannibalize the rest of the menu or do they grow it with this opportunity? brendan: who cares. [laughter] vonnie: more bacon. tom: careful analysis there from brendan greeley. the ugliness of recent years all the way back to 1998 and 1997. a little bit more volatility than here. ralph glassosstein is with us. what was the sweat like in 1998 versus now? >> in 1990 -- in 1998 it was precipitated by the failure of long-term capital which as we
7:32 am
recall was a hedge fund that was leveraged well over 100 to one. capital markets and the fixed income markets within spread this fear of failure about many institutions to this is really spurred by a couple of things. number one, we are going from a period of time where the markets have been driven by policy. fed policy and ecb policy and global quantitative easing. we have had a policy affected if not driven market. when policy is kept constant
7:33 am
volatility is always going to be low. we are now shifting from a policy driven market to a fundamentally driven market. fundamentals are by nature more volatile. so i think we will have more volatility going forward and second of all i think the change in policy always injects an increase of uncertainty. tom: will continue that story here particularly a distortion. because asked on ghosted -- kazakhstan posted 12%. that's clearly to protect against inflation is the headline. this is the turmoil of the tenge at 240 versus the cuban real.
7:34 am
-- brazilian real. the euro -- the headline there does nothing. 44.55. all attention on emerging markets. brazil and australia we can. brendan: this is "bloomberg surveillance" i am brendan greeley with tom keene and vonnie quinn. john kerry will give a speech to congress in favor of the deal from iran. john kuhn's signals he will support the deal. >> i will support it because it puts us on a known path of limiting the nuclear agreement. the alternative to me is a scenario of uncertainty and isolation. brendan: william cowan joins us from indianapolis. it looks likely that the president has enough votes to sustain his veto. what does john kerry need to
7:35 am
accomplish when he speaks in philadelphia today? >> i think he has to give one final pitch to solidify the rest of the democrats who are outstanding. i think there are 10 or 11 democrats who are yet to commit and if he can get them to commit that would mean they could not run a filibuster so the republican effort to negate this negotiation would fail so that would be a double victory. i think he will talk up the need to get more on board to support the president if there should be a veto and to see if he can get enough to prevent the passage of the revolution -- resolution disallowing the agreement itself. and secondly he will have to make an argument on this particular effort. it will start immediately
7:36 am
imposing sanctions upon iran which iran might take as a reason to break the agreement itself so the question would be, what will happen then? the rest of the international community is not putting sanctions back on it would be a unilateral effort by the united states and it would put them on a faster track than the 15 years they are currently on a 15-month track. >> what is the thing that this white house can do? >> is not just israel. it is the united arab emirates with the saudi's, with quatar and israel. all of the countries in the region are fearful. so what has to happen is the united states has to have a package of systems and
7:37 am
intelligence capabilities that will make the local capability more resilient and robust against what is anticipated of being the continuation of the destabilizing activities of the irradiance. there will be arms packages and things it will solidify the gcc into a functioning regional power. tom: you are very good at straddling the political debate. vice president cheney suggests we are in the middle of an arms race. is that the consequence? that we end up with an arms race between uae saudi arabia, iran and you name the other parties? >> that is one of the potential offsets. the other countries do not trust iran. we do not trust iran.
7:38 am
that is the reason for the intrusive inspections to ensure they will not cheat. if they cheat, that will get out and the other countries will start to modernize their own capabilities which means gaining a nuclear capability whether they buy it from pakistan or north korea. tom: part of this is the pageantry that we see in china over the next few days. i am stunned at the lineup assisting the chinese. venezuela, north korea, russia sudan and i would like to think there are other parties as well. how large is the chinese military might and its projection across the pacific? >> at this point it is a growing regional power. it does not have a blue water navy that can sale to various parts of the globe and affect
7:39 am
actions on the water, in the air or on the land. they will develop into a blue water navy and will have a global presence which is something we have to anticipate and find ways to manage its impact with countries that do not wish to be dominated. tom: are we budgeting the navy at an appropriate level given the perceived threat of china? >> we are not only budgeting the level of threat for china but the effective use of our military. it is down to some of the lowest levels in recent history and it will have a major impact on morale. if we have to ground planes because we cannot fly them. if the commander in chief called them into action. we have some serious problems that have been inflicted already under the hammer of
7:40 am
sequestration. to the extent that we will really start deteriorating and dropping to a second level of capability over a period of 10-15 years. brendan: this turns to blue water navy and this makes a lot of admirals happy. what is the significance of the carrier killer missile that china is parading in beijing? >> the carriers do present a challenge. they are floating islands and can be targeted and more and more sophisticated whistles are being developed. they would be very hard to stop. but what's that happens you are in a state of war. so the question is, would china run the risk of going to all-out war with the united states by taking on and sinking one of our
7:41 am
ships. that is a question that the chinese will obviously want to take into account. at this point we still have overwhelming superiority. vonnie: if they do get the votes needed, who is best placed in the next administration to continue? >> i think that the next administration, whoever is in that position is going to have to walk tenderly to say i know i made this promise to tear this thing apart but then he is going to talk to his so-called allies and say if you do that you are on your own. we will not impose more sanctions and we are quite happy doing a lot of business with iran. if you take action it will be on your own and you will live with the consequences. i think the next administration
7:42 am
will be hard to pull this down once it gets put into effect. brendan: what is the value of just resuming any kind of diplomatic relationship with iran? >> i think the irradiance would say that -- the iranians would say that we negotiated. a deal is a deal. we are not with you. the british are not with you. the eu and russia and china are not with you. if you want to renegotiate on your own -- but understand these are the countries supplying weapons, money and infrastructure building in our country. you will have to consider that. tom: thank you for the briefing. the former secretary of defense. ralph glossstein is with us now.
7:43 am
i want to go back to the cadet who entered the naval academy in 1943. brendan: surveillance correction, it is called midshipman. tom: forgive me. when i got to get into the navy. you served president carter tell us what the nation should know about this president. >> thank you for reminding me how old i am. but look, president carter was an exceptional man and i would say that whatever one thinks of his presidency, some think highly others less so but i think there is universal agreement that he has been our most successful ex-president. he is dedicated himself to human rights issues in solving conflict locally without war and
7:44 am
i think he has had a remarkable post presidential tenure. tom: you were there in 1979, did you think there was a carter malaise? >> i would say we were not as effective from the president on down in communicating his policies to the country and ultimately that was reflected in the 1980 election. i do think that we saw last week the embrace of this man who is obviously confronting an incredibly serious medical situation and i would be hard-pressed to describe or find someone with more grace or intellect and appreciation for the life he has had.
7:45 am
i would like to make one other point. president carter and vice president mondale, are the longest surviving ex-president and vice president. 35 years. the previous were jefferson and adams -- 26 years. tom: our twitter question of the day and the markets. is the u.s. immune to emerging market downturn? repeat after me -- midshipman. ♪

7:50 am
marginal car but know what the price of money is now and not into the future. what an odd space. i don't know what money costs because of my central bank. when does this and? >> the fed has been very clear that they wanted to end and they wanted to begin to end in the next few months. my own personal view is that it will be challenging, notwithstanding the positive economic news to that it will be challenging and it in a period of volatility like we are in right now. i will say, very strongly that to me the important question is not when they start. it is the path. the difference between zero and
7:51 am
0.25 for the economy is not a gnat's rear end. tom: can we say that on tv? [laughter] brendan: i think we can. >> what people want to hear is that while we do begin to normalize no one is setting a target of normalization 12 months 18 months or even five years from now. brendan: it is a most as if we have lost perspective of what tightening is. what you're saying is a must exactly what james bullard said. the committee isn't comfortable tightening volatility. culture matters. >> we sat here two years ago and i sat on the air when everybody was aflutter about the removal of quantitative easing. at that time i said, the fed has
7:52 am
been very clear that one of two things is going to happen. either the economy will be strong enough or we will leave it in place because the economy is not strong enough. as i said then and i would say the same thing today both of those outcomes are good for the equity markets. the gradual removal was better because it meant a stronger economy in place. it is not going to happen unless the economy is strong enough to withstand it. that is better for the markets than a week economy with zero interest. vonnie: the fed has waited too long and it will be too little too late. where do you see yields going? will there be some sort of conditioning in the medium term or will things go lower? >> i think we will see a very
7:53 am
slow, data-driven return to normal rates which is probably three to 3.5% and the path will be measured in years, not months. vonnie: what about corporate america? does it have to get the deals done immediately? >> i think that corporate america -- longer rates are certainly somewhat abnormally low because of the short rates anchoring the yield curve or 20% increase is not going to have that much of an effect on rates. tom: you have so much experience, what will it mean for body count as we go to the end of the year where guys like you create budgets and look to the bonus season in february?
7:54 am
does everyone have to get further leaner and meaner? >> i think there is a long-term trend in our industry which is leader driven by technology. you have vast parts of the trading execution business that are becoming electronic which means less jobs like any other industry. the other pressure we talked about earlier is a return on equity in the financial industry that is below that of the utility industry. that is pretty pathetic and that will be addressed primarily not by more risk. vonnie: tom need to get to radio you have a stellar lineup this morning. it is time to answer the twitter question of the day. we asked, is the u.s. immune to
7:55 am
an emerging market downturn? which owes three. better than most but the u.s. will not dodge the bullet entirely. vonnie: that is a reasonable assumption. maybe there isn't downturn maybe it is a global tie out from the fed. brendan: is that what we are looking at? >> i don't think so. maybe we are going to a world where looking at the two drivers of markets, policy and fundamentals it is my colleague who is brilliant on this who says we have been driven primarily by policy with the support of fundamentals. policy can't set the level of a market. you have to have fundamentals so , we are gradually pulling away
7:56 am
that supports of the markets will increasingly be driven by a fundamentals. they are global markets. that does mean a little bit more exposure to economy around the globe and more volatility. vonnie: our third answer is immune -- no, resistant -- yes. brendan: extra points for committing to the metaphor. looking at the australian dollar, vonnie, you pointed out that in september it was at 0.95 and it is that 0.7 right now. the value of trade, exports to china in 2014 was $90 billion last year. just to put that in perspective to the u.s. exports, $10 billion. as china goes, so goes australia. vonnie: my agenda item is the economic numbers coming up.
7:57 am
looking for an increased second-quarter from the previous reading of 1.3%. we some mortgage applications up 11% last week. brendan: the productivity numbers are hugely important right now. labor costs as well. my last agenda, joe biden speaking in florida today. is he saying things that sound presidential? what are his plans. as you just pointed out in the news, he has a team thinking about things in new hampshire. ralph is not running for president but we thank you for joining us from ever core. bloomberg surveillance continues on radio. vonnie: they will be talking about the beige book as well. brendan: tom always scoffs at beige bookers. vonnie: it depends on the timing. brendan: if you cannot find it
